Everton: Sammy Lee’s defence of former head coach Sam Allardyce has supporters raging

Speaking to Radio City talk via the Liverpool Echo, Sammy Lee, former assistant coach to ex-Everton boss Sam Allardyce, defended his colleague amid the talk surrounding his ‘bad rep’ – prompting many Toffees supporters to lash out at the pair. 

Lee, who has worked under Allardyce for years at various clubs including Bolton Wanderers and Crystal Palace, also partnered the former England manager at Goodison Park – with the duo helping to guide the club from ‘16th to 8th’ in the table over their six-month spell after Ronald Koeman was relieved of his duties.

The Toffees, who eventually finished 8th that season, also replaced Allardyce with Marco Silva for the 2018/2019 campaign – and many supporters were glad to see the back of him due to his style of play. However, speaking on Radio City talk, Lee has slammed the criticism surrounding Allardyce’ time at Everton and promptly defended his former colleague – leading to a fierce backlash from supporters.
